What has happened to America?
If we don’t remember and honor our soldiers, we’re done for.
We don’t stand a chance.
Last Memorial Day we returned home from what we THOUGHT would be an outpouring of residents to honor those who gave their lives (our troops) so that others could live free.
The event was advertised in the newspapers along with “free food and refreshments galore.”
We learned, sadly, that we apparently live in an America that largely now ignores Memorial and Veterans Days, because the turnout was pathetic.
Memorial Day and probably Veterans Days have become just like any other day — and I’d be surprised if the ‘new breed’ of millennials even know there IS a Memorial Day or why!
This country cannot and will not survive unless we recognize our soldiers as the only thing that stands between freedom and tyranny. Too many brave Americans have died to preserve our way of life.
For you patriots out there who DO celebrate Memorial and Veterans Days, have a long, prosperous and happy life and ENJOY THE PRESENTATION.
